Spokeswomen I

May 17 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

Spokeswomen: a facilitated peer group designed to help female entrepreneurs become more persuasive and effective communicators.

How does it work? Through this highly interactive 8-week online program, participants will develop their own personal style by deepening their understanding of persuasive tools and practicing storytelling through a range of speaking scenarios. Participants will practice delivering planned speeches, providing and giving feedback, initiating difficult conversations, and improvising.

There are limited seats available for this cohort. The Spokeswomen cohort will have a maximum of 8 participants in order to allow for ample speaking opportunities in the allotted two-hour meeting window.

When does Spokeswomen begin? We will be kicking off our Summer 2022 cohort of Spokeswomen I on May 17th and the cohort meets virtually for 2 hours weekly on Tuesdays from 4pm-6pm for 8 weeks.

What happens at the end of the course? The course will culminate with a virtual speaking event, at which each participant will present their “goal speech”.

Who should sign up? Female entrepreneurs who are currently in business.

How much does the program cost? In light of the pandemic, we will be offering this program free of charge. Please note that this program typically costs $250 per person.

What if my business does not entail public speaking? Spokeswomen will help to build your comfort with speaking up in all kinds of situations that you may find yourself in as an entrepreneur — making a pitch, speaking in front of groups, interviewing, selling, negotiating, and more. No matter what kind of business you own, your ability to communicate your message is essential.
